This upper body workout has some new push up variation exercises that help to make push ups fun. Most of the exercises have push ups snuck into fun exercise combinations. The last one is straight up burpees, but the others are dynamic, fast moving exercises to change up the routine and keep your head entertained.  This is an all bodyweight workout. It’s tough and intense but fun and the time goes by fast. 

All you need for this interval workout is an interval timer. Read about Gymboss, my favorite timer, and get links to online timers here.

High Knees – From standing, bring legs up with knees bent one at a time as high as you can. You can put hands out parallel to ground and try to hit hands with knees as you bring them up, alternating legs and doing this as quickly as you can. This exercise is like running on the spot, except that you are keeping back straight and driving knees up high with every rep.
